Red Lemonade 2.0
Served on the rocks, this sweet-tart, patio-friendly cocktail is the Cosmopolitan's cooler, younger sibling. Created by the folks at Bua, a no-frills but friendly cocktail bar on New York’s quirky St. Mark’s Place, it gets its name from a signature Irish drink called red lemonade, essentially a red-hued lemon soda. While the original red lemonade gets its color from artificial additives, this upgraded version is colored by pomegranate juice and spiked with either vodka or gin.
- 2 oz vodka or gin
- .75 oz Pomegranate Juice
- .75 oz Simple Syrup
- .5 oz Lemon Juice
- bar spoon pomegranate seeds, for garnish
- Lemon Twist
Combine all ingredients save for the garnishes in a shaker with ice and shake well.
Strain into an ice-filled Collins glass and garnish.
